Sometimes the combination of lithium and drugs in the Saphris class will cause extra-pyramidal symptoms, when either one alone will cause either mild or no symptoms.

In this situation, I think I would really want to know if Saphris can help. Could you withdraw the lithium and see how she does on the Saphris? If she does well, you can build her treatment plan around that; if she doesn't, you will know for sure that the Saphris is not helping. Possibly lithium could be re-introduced later at a much lower level, say 150 or 300 mg. per day.
